These vast grasslands are situated just to the north of the Republic of Bastok. In contrast to the surrounding Bastok Mountains, the Konschtat Highlands are abundant with an array of alpine wildlife. Also, in order to harness the powerful winds called "Odin's Wrath" that constantly blow through the area, Bastok has constructed numerous windmills throughout the highlands. According to a treaty, San d'Oria provides a portion of their grain crops in exchange for the use of Bastok's windmills to produce flour.

Konschtat Highlands is home to many creatures of Vana'diel, populated by sheep, lizards, saplings, bees, Goblins, Quadavs, and the occasional Thunder Elemental. Many unprepared adventurers have been felled by roaming Tremor Rams and the Rampaging Ram. The zone is especially dangerous at night, when the undead prowl for fresh meat.

The Crag of Dem breaks the skyline near the middle of the map, providing veteran adventurers with access to Ru'Aun Gardens and Al'Taieu.

Fortune seekers dig for riches in Gusgen Mines to the east of the Crag. The Bastokian path to Jeuno goes through Pashhow Marshlands to the northeast.

Thanks in advance

Is this a good spot to farm thunder elementals, i killed one once but no luck when i returned to do a farming session, i did get a few beehive chips though ^^ my main is blm25/whm11.

Buy the map at selbina, the very most north npc in the city, and a word of advice buy every freaking map you see avalible for sale.

its not a bad spot the best one ive found actually but the weather patterns in konschtat are too difficult to know wen to go unless u plan on makin regular trips to selby. if ur gunna farm anything there id say go for beehive chips their easier to get and sell for a hell of a lot more on remora server at least

Goblin NM.

It's LVL is random. You can only trade the ??? 6 things in one Game day. And the ??? likes to move around the Crag every game hour or so.. For me it always comes out of his "Hole" on the 2nd Game Day. I know its Random in LVL becasue I was a LVL 70 PLD when I poped it and I powned it. As for what to give it to pop... Junk seems to work... Always Drops one or two Gold Beastcoins.. and a few K in gil.

Bendigeit Vran
# Jul 20 2005 at 11:34 AM Rating: Decent
There is a new monster out now in the highlands. I can confirm this cause i just killed it. It's name is Bendigeit Vran and it droped a Rogetsurin(lv 15 throwing weapon for thf/nin). It's location was the top right corner of E-9. was this put in with the new update or what? i wasn't able to get a picture cause i was to busy worring about it killing me since i knew nothing about it. It was a shodow creature and dressed in i think sam armor. If anyone else has seen this monster i would like to here about it. I am Nightshadow on Kujata server.

yes if you trade certain items from your inventory (not sure which ones)to the ??? it spawns Goblin Archaeologist.

It takes crystals for sure. I always toss in junk like yag feathers as well. I never got it to pop on first try, and it refuses anything you try to give it a second time. The object is to lure the NM gob out of it's hole. Last time i saw it i had a lvl 30 trade the second set of crystals and it popped. dropped 2 gold beast coins (13k each fenrir) and 5k gil. This NM is rumored to be as strong as the person who pops it, it was popped by a 30ish rdm and swiftly owned by my 59whm/29blm at the time.

It appears for the quest given to you by the moogles near the chocobo place where you have to find a certain amount of cards and trade them to the moogle and he gives a you a special belt or a special medal (its at least a moogle for bastok)

does anyone have details on the wayward worm? I unearthed it twice from the overturned soil points. Both times it cast bind successfully and disappeared. I wasn't able to target it for attack either time.

L-7 is the entrance to Gusgen, right?

Well, when I go there, I just hit dead end black wall in the cave. There doesn't seem to be anything there except this black wall.

I have both expansions installed...

How do I get inside?
RE: L-7?
# Oct 08 2005 at 5:32 PM Rating: Decent
From what I've read, it should be L-7. I'm having the same problem, though. Can't figure out why it won't let me in... Can someone tell us where it is if not there?
RE: L-7?
# Oct 12 2005 at 1:12 PM Rating: Decent
Okay, after running around abit, I discovered it IS L-7. I think both of us got confused with D-7, where the cave to nowhere is. On the other side of the map is L-7 and there is actual mine'like stuff strewn about so it looks right. Thanx to Rhomber and Victoriousflame on Alexander for helping out. If you run into a cave that doesn't go anywhere, triple check the map.

Would it be feasible for, say, a 15 MNK to solo his way to 20 here? I've been wating in Valkurm for the past hour and a half without an invite from a party that stayed together for more than 2 minutes. And I check to see if there are any WHMs or BLMs that are lfg, but there were seriously none. I just need to get this to 20, and then I'll take up WAR and eventually take up PLD. So for now, so I'm not gimped, I'd like to level MNK so that it's leveled for when I start to level up WAR.

But could I solo in Konschtat? I have WHM leveled so would that help if I sub it, that way I can use Cure and Protect, and what ever other spells are available?

You certainly can. I soloed my Nin from lvl 15 - 20 because I hated the Dunes so much. You can kill mist lizards and gobs in Konshtat to lvl 18. Then from lvl 18 - 20, head to Dangruf and kill tier 2 gobs.

The "???" you guys are finding are the Gob Alchemist trade to the "???" Earth Clusters and he will spawn follow the "???" till he does.

It moves around so you have to watch it.
